I’m pretty sure you know exactly what I mean if I talk about having days when laziness and lack of creative ideas keep you from working on something, anything. Not just for writers of course, but for creative people in … Continue reading Fear is the mind-killer: Simple writer-ly advice.
So the much hyped and mixedly anticipated DC: Rebirth has gotten underway.
I don’t know what your background with all this is but here’s mine: I’m a DC fan since I was a kid, long before I was a Marvel fan or read any other comics besides Lee Falks Phantom, Tintin, Asterix and stuff like Amar Chitra Katha.
